The historic tram sheds are a living, breathing, ever changing urban canvas. I don’t know how long they can survive the harsh treatment by the rain that pours in through a broken glass ceiling and the night marauders who creep in to make their mark.

This shot was taken in July 2010, Glebe NSW

    Great take on this iconic spot Sooz – I must make it out there (if I say it often enough I may just get there!) … graffiti has a strange appeal.

  • It does have a strange appeal. Sometimes I love it and think it enhances the environment and other times it makes me feel sad. The last time I went I was heart broken, so much more broken glass and physical violence against the trams.

    I was told that when those Trams were originally placed in there they were in mint condition, but good capture sooz

  • I have heard that too Philip and am saddened by the loss of such historical treasures. Every time I go there I see more broken glass violent damage to the structure of the trams. I don’t know how much longer they can survive.
